The use of "forever" is definitely a nice coup against De Beers, but I have to say that I find the message of "She's forever in your debt" really, really creepy.

I agree with Q Pheevr, it is creepy and insulting to women.

Q. Pheevr and The Corresponder: I'm usually hypersensitive to language that demeans women, but somehow this use of "debt" doesn't bother me. I take it as a rephrasing of "she'll thank you." But I do see how someone could find it offensive.
